Sox and Dawgs:
As first reported by Sports Illustrated football writer Peter King, New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady and the team have restructured his existing contract and got a year extension in the deal.
The three year extension is said to worth $27 million but it gives the team an additional $15 million against the flat cap over the 2013 and 2014 seasons. The new deal will keep Brady in Foxboro through the 2017 season when he turns 40.
The new pact calls for salaries of $7 million in 2015, $8 million in 2016 and $9 million in 2017 and a $3 million signing bonus.
While other quarterbacks have signed larger deal that end up hampering their teams at times against the cap Brady has always been willing to restructure so the team will remain competitive in his time there.
Among the teams free agents that may benefit include WR Wes Welker, CB Aqib Talib, WR Julian Edelman, RB Danny Woodhead and T Sebastian Vollmer.

Manti Te’o posted a 4.81 40 time and weighed in at a less-than-expected 241 lbs at the combine. That’s okay. Being slow isn’t that much of a liability trying to defend the read-option, right? I’m sure two more months of Peter King talking him up will convince the Bengals to take Te’o at 21. The Ravens also look very impressed.
People are still wondering aloud if Te’o...
